Viscous. Fearsome. Deadly. You’d think those words describe a Marine sniper. But they actually describe Razer’s newest gaming mouse, the DeathAdder. This new, sleek mouse could be the ultimate gaming mouse that anyone has ever encountered. The DeathAdder is Razer’s first right-handed gaming mouse. Join me, as I look deep into this mouse to see if it ends my journey to find the best gaming mouse.
Razer was founded in 1998 and has since produced some of the most recognized and widely used gaming peripherals. The company has always kept its slogan, “For Gamers, By Gamers”, in mind when creating gaming products. This is clearly evident in all of their products on the market. Razer continues to strive to meet the needs of today’s astute gamers.
I was quite surprised when I saw the packaging for the mouse, because it was much smaller than I expected. The front of the box loudly broadcasts that the mouse uses a 3G Infra-red sensor and is capable of 1800 DPI. The back of the box really impressed me because it has the features of the mouse in ten different languages! The right side of the box displays a comparison of the DeathAdder against a standard 400-800 DPI optical mouse. It also shows that the Razer DeathAdder takes 55% less motion to move on the screen versus a standard mouse. On the left side, “RazerGuy” has a two paragraph message for the patrons of the DeathAdder.
The front of the box opens up like a book when you rip the Velcro apart. The mouse is then revealed covered in plastic, but it still captivated me from the second I saw it. On the left side, a message portrays just how much pwnage the gamer is about to experience with this mouse.
Included with the mouse are a quick start guide, driver disc, certificate of authenticity, a master guide and a poster card of the mouse.
